It’s true bc some, not all, black ppl complain constantly about systematic oppression THAT DOESN’T EXIST!

But clearly it DOES EXIST. I offer two pieces of evidence that it exists. Firstly, the disproportionate upvotes on racist posts left on the site (including ones like yours which deny the existence of racism). Secondly, the comments listed in the following debate:-

Who said I’m denying racism exists. I’m denying systematic oppression. Sir, denying racism isn’t racism itself, its just what you see.

With the relentless flow of blacks complaining about anti-black racism most non blacks have become immune to the daily dose of black verbiage.

Just like The Boy who cried Wolf was ignored when he really needed help, so the black's ceaseless crying about racism is not only not being taken seriously but is going unnoticed by most.

Non blacks are too concerned with their own problems and how to put bread on the tables for themselves and their families

White ppl don't take blacks seriously when they talk about legit racism

White people don't take blacks seriously when they talk about this topic because legit racism isn't actually legit racism, like liberals calling all white conservatives Nazis.

Side: true

When you get called racist simply for having a different opinion than someone on the left, it falls on deaf ears. I've had 8+ years of that.

Hello High,

You may think calling black people bongos and saying they’re inferior to the white man, a difference of opinion, but it’s racism, pure and simple.

This is because they constantly whine about racism that isn't legit.

As much as I will admit there is still a disturbing amount of racism, I also will say the amount of claims that racism was committed is overly exaggerated to the point that legitimate claims aren't taken seriously.

Case in point, just a few weeks ago we had an irate man call in complaining that we couldn't give him something that he wanted, our manager (because it was escalated to that point) explained it was against FERPA policy and we simply couldn't do it, was then accused of being racist. The caller (who had no accent and who we obviously could not see) tried to claim that we wouldn't (not couldn't) give him what he wanted because he was black. It was ridiculous and was meet with the derision it deserved.

Oh You Jewel shall we forget the cries and the Racist term used when someone what not bake a cake for a Homo Wedding ? Racism is owned by your Progressive Party a fact that is undeniable at this point even though you refuse to accept Reality. Barack Obama is out of power and can you tell me of one lawsuit that has been levied against a bakery for not providing service to the Homo's ?

Bongos shouldn't be taken seriously about anything.

They are a negative and violent influence on every society they infest.

From Melbourne in Australia to Detroit in the U.S.A.

From Toronto in Canada to London, England.

Where there's BONGO so there will be trouble.

It's a case of the boy who cried wolf. When there is actual racism, people might be very skeptical due to all that social justice warrior / far left stuff which exaggerates everything.

Side: true

White people do take them seriously. Many try to understand and empathize with their struggles as best they can. The problem is that they have been given many opportunities by the government to try an help them join the ranks as successful Americans as a whole and it hasn't had an overwhelming effect yet. Many other cultures and races have dealt with racism and hate but eventually they pull out of it and rise above it. Someone that lost both legs and you know that they are hurting and in pain and have a hard life. If they complain and cry about it enough eventually it will get old listening to it even though you know its hard for them. Black ppl have an opportunity to be better than white ppl bc many of them do have to struggle more to succeed but not a very high percentage have risen to that. Many prefer to simply complain that racism holds them back and thats where a majority of the modern day racism comes from. Ignore the hate, work hard, learn a skill or go to school, stay out of trouble and I promise you, no one will have any legetimate power to hold you back. Sorry if this offends but it is what I believe.
